1 Corinthians 16


Concerning the Collection

But concerning the collection, the one for the holy ones, as I set in order to the assemblies of Galatia, so also you do! According to one of the Sabbaths each of you by yourself put in! treasuring up what ever way he should be prospered in; that not whenever I come, then the collections should take place. And whenever I should come, whom ever you should approve through letters, these I will send forth to carry away your favor unto Jerusalem. And if it should be worth for me also to go, [2with 3me 1they shall go]. And I will come to you whenever I shall have gone through Macedonia; for Macedonia I do go through. [2with 3you 1And] by chance I shall remain, or even pass the winter, that you should send me forward of which ever place I should go. [2I do not 3want 1For 6you 4just now 7in 8passing 5to see]; but I hope for some time to remain with you, if the Lord commits it to my care. But I shall remain in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a door opens to me great and active, and the ones acting as adversaries are many. 10 And if Timothy should come, see that fearlessly he should be with you! for the work of the Lord he works, as also I. 11 Not anyone then should treat him with contempt. But forward him in peace! that he should come to me; for I look out for him with the brethren. 12 And concerning Apollos the brother, much I appealed to him, that he should come to you with the brethren; and assuredly it was not his will that now he should come, but he will come whenever he should have an opportune time.

Final Exhortations

13 Be vigilant! Stand firmly in the belief! Be manly! Be fortified! 14 [2all 3of you 5in 6love 1Let 4be]! 15 But I appeal to you, brethren, (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is first-fruit of Achaia, and [3for 4service 5to the 6holy ones 1they arranged 2themselves]), 16 that also you should submit to such, and to every one working together and tiring in labor. 17 And I rejoice over the arrival of Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus; for the deficiency of yours these supplied. 18 For they rested my spirit and the one of yours. Recognize then such! 19 Greet the assemblies of Asia! [4Greet 5you 7in 8the Lord 6much 1Aquila 2and 3Priscilla], with the [2in 3their house 1assembly]. 20 [4greet 5you 2the 3brethren 1All]. Greet one another with [2kiss 1a holy]! 21 The greeting by my hand, Paul. 22 If anyone is not fond of the Lord Jesus Christ, be anathema! Maranatha. 23 The favor of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24  My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
